Snappee On The Go April 28 2016
A Day With Snappee
Imagine those days where you get everything right, including your hair. Aren’t they the best? Maybe it's a bit of faith, or a bit of luck. Well, we think Snappee has something to do with that too!
We recently spent the day with cheer captain Regene to see how Snappee helps her transition throughout her day. As a busy full-time college student, undecided major, with many duties such as studying for exams, planning cheer activities, and managing a part-time job. Regene finds it easiest to style her curly 3B hair with Snappees, Mixed Chicks hair creme and oil to keep her beautiful curls bouncy and in tact.
At the start of her day she goes through her usual morning routine of spraying water to revive her curls and applying a bit of product, then putting her hair back with the Snappee headband style to keep her curls in place for class. Regene finds it best to have her hair down, but out of her face during the day.
By mid-day, she may be done with class and her hair is still perfectly in place but her day is not over yet! Regene then shifted to her leading role as cheer squad captain of 15. That is no easy task!
During our day with Regene she decided to work a half up half down ponytail hairstyle for practice. She loves to look cute while still being able to perform all of her stunts without fussing with her hair.
We followed up with her after practice during her cool down stretch to see how Snappee and her 'do had kept up after three hours of active movement. We found that even after all that cheering and stunting Regene’s hair stayed perfectly in place. She loved how her hair was one less thing she had to worry about and knew Snappee had her covered.
Even though our day with Regene came to an end, we were happy to see that Snappee helped another woman on the go, transition throughout her busy day!
“I love all the different color varieties. These Snappees are amazing to use on my hair, doesn’t damage or rip out any of my curls.”

Styling Big Hair with Snappee; Twists, Braids & Locs March 13 2015
Styling Big Hair With Snappee
Twists, Braids, & Locs
Whether you’re rocking twists like Brandy, stay braided up like Beyonce, or sporting gorgeous faux locs like Zendaya, you've probably experienced one of the following problems.: either your hair tie is too tight and it breaks or it's not big enough to fit multiple times around your ultra thick hair.
You try to stretch your old elastic hair tie wide enough to fit around your hair, and before you even get your hair through it, your rubber-band breaks right at the melted seam! But let's imagine that you manage to get your hair into the rubber band without it breaking, except this time the elastic is too tight for you to wrap more than once so you're stuck with a loose and sloppy ponytail. The elastic is simply not flexible enough to meet your needs.
Luckily for you, Snappee does the trick! Our no damage hair tie is an extra stretchy and extra soft hair accessory that can support your hair. Because of the snap off technology, you are able to snap multiple hair ties together to create the perfect strength and length to fit your hair.
Above you can see the luscious braids of one of our friends wrapped neatly and securely with a few Snappees. She also shows a braided style with just one Snappee holding it in place. Meanwhile, he's done the wrap and snap with his loss and has no damage when taking the hair tie out.

5 Simple Tips for Loving the Hair You Have
With Valentine's Day upon us, we thought it especially apropos to talk about
It's not always easy to love the hair atop our head. It can be especially difficult for those of you transitioning to your natural hair style for the first time. It can be very frustrating to feel as if you have no control over your locks, but a little love can go a long way. That's why we came up with this simple list of ways to practice loving our hair! But don't stop there, apply these tips and practice self love as well!
1. Be Gentle
Truly touch your hair with care and consideration. Try finger combing your hair in the shower in preparation for brushing/combing. Use gentle, non-damaging products such as the Snappee Hair Tie or silk wraps to treat your hair right.
2. Take Your Time
Take your time to detangle with care. We recommend a wide tooth comb and a Denman brush for getting the rest of the pesky knots out safely. When styling, be mindful of causing damage for the sake of saving time. What's the rush?
3. Give Yourself the Best
It may take a bit of time (and money) to test out hair products, but once you have found your regimen don't skimp. You and your hair deserve the very best and don't you forget it! Some of our favorites include Wen, Kinky Curly, and Shea Moisture (pictured left) and Moroccan Oil (not pictured).
4. Stay Hydrated
Challenge yourself to drink more water every day. Use a moisturizing conditioner, leave-in conditioner, and a deep conditioner from time to time. Another tip is avoiding over-processing and handling your hair - try protective hair styles. At night, put your hair up in a pineapple or wrap your hair in a scarf.
5. Accept Your Quirks
This may be the most challenging and quite possibly the most important tip for loving your hair, and loving yourself! Sometimes it feels like our hair has a mind of it's own. Go with it! Our quirks are what make us unique. Love every aspect of who you are including the cowlicks, grey hairs, varying textures and all!
